Screening Change: BLANCANIEVES on Wed 21 May

14th May, 2014

Due to a technical difficulty, last Wednesday’s screening of BLANCANIEVES had to be postponed to a later date.

We have now confirmed that the film will instead be screened on WEDNESDAY 21 MAY at the usual time of 7:30 PM.

Set in 1920s Seville, BLANCANIEVES follows a young girl who is shunned by her evil stepmother and runs away with a troupe of dwarves. She eventually discovers a natural talent as a bullfighter and becomes a legend in this uniquely Spanish twist on the Snow White fairy tale.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the postponement and hope that you will be able to make the new screening date.

‘ESCAPE PLAN’: ARNIE AND SLY AT THE FILM GROUP!
................................................................

High profile films are increasingly bypassing theatrical releases in Australia and going straight to DVD/Blu-Ray due to local distributors finding it difficult to recoup their theatrical release costs.

There are countless examples, but one of the more controversial films to receive this treatment recently was ESCAPE PLAN. The prison break action flick starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger was originally intended for release here late last year, but was pulled at the last minute for undisclosed reasons, much to the outrage of action fans across the country.

Fortunately, for those wanting to see two action legends team up on the big screen, the ANU Film Group is proudly putting on one of only two theatrical screenings of the film in Canberra! (The other was last week at the NFSA’s Arc Cinema)

ESCAPE PLAN screens on Friday 29 March at 9:45 PM, as the second feature following Formula 1 rivalry drama RUSH.
